We are currently booked until September 8th. Book your September and October stay for Fall Colors and the last fishing before ice. 3 Night minimum stay. Our house is available for rental throughout the year.

In light of COVID-19, we are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests. Our cleaning crew comes in after each guest leaves and they will clean, disinfect, and use a medical grade sanitizer in the house. We are also not renting back-to-back so we have a 48-72 hour vacancy period between guests.

Looking for a lake vacation in southern Wisconsin? You don’t have to travel 6 hours to find a clean lake and clean house! The Bears Den on Lake Ripley is ready for groups up to 10. 50' of lake frontage and your own pier and boat lift. Yes, bring your boat and have it ready to go. You need to make your reservations early to rent this great lake home.

We thought of everything in the well-stocked kitchen – Dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, utensils. Got little kiddos? We have a baby crib and high chair at the cottage.

Sleeping arrangement: Master bedroom and 3rd bedroom have lake views.

Unique Features

The Bears Den rental is lucky to be on one of the cleanest spring fed lakes in southern Wisconsin! Lake Ripley is 423 acres and has a public beach too. Your Lake Ripley shore lunch might include Bass, Northern, Walleye, and Bluegill.

Relax in a professionally decorated vacation home with beautiful views of the lake. Unique location to: Chicago 120 miles; Milwaukee 60 miles; Wisconsin Dells 70 miles.

Things To Do

Guests will love spending days on the 423 acre lake swimming, fishing, water skiing and boating. Spend an entire afternoon at Lake Ripley Park (Memorial Day to Labor Day). Enjoy the pavilion, beach, 2 tennis courts, basketball court, kiddos play structure, volleyball courts, and a disc golf course.

Cambridge is famous for salt-glazed pottery, a historic Main Street, and hiking or biking on the CamRock trail system. The quaint shop owners and local artists are eager to tell you all about Cambridge, Wisconsin. If you can make it here in early August, you’ll be treated to sidewalk sales and activities during Maxwell Street Days (city wide garage sales too). Like community theaters? The Fireside Dinner Theater (Fort Atkinson) and Cambridge-Deerfield Players Theater stage is always filled with local talent and maybe the next big thing!

Things to remember: Please bring your own towels. Bring charcoal & lighter fluid for grilling out!
